050.LR2.0HE In commendation of declineing Beawtie.|
050.LR2.001 Noe spring, or som%5r%6 beawtie hath such gra%Ace
050.LR2.002 As I haue seene in one %1Autumnall%2 face,
050.LR2.003 young beawties force yo%5r%6: loue, & y%5ts%6 a rape
050.LR2.004 This doth but councell, yet yo%5w%6: canot scape,
050.LR2.005 If't weere a sha%Ame to loue, here t'weere noe shame
050.LR2.006 Affecco%Mn here takes reverences name,
050.LR2.007 weere her first yeares, y%5e%6 golden age, that's true
050.LR2.008 But now shee's gold oft tryed, & ever newe
050.LR2.009 That was her torrid, & enflameing tyme
050.LR2.010 This is her habitable Tropick clime.
050.LR2.011 ffaire eyes, who asks more heat, then comes from hen'ce
050.LR2.012 Hee in a fever wishes pestilence.
050.LR2.013 Call not those wrinkles graues; if graues they weere
050.LR2.014 They weere loues graues, or he els is noe where.|
050.LR2.015 yet lyes not loue dead, here he doth sitt
050.LR2.016 vow'd to his Trench, like an Anchoritt.| [CW:And#here=]
050.LR2.017 And here till hers, w%5ch%6 must be his death come [f.14, p. 13]
050.LR2.018 He doth not digg a gra%Aue, but build a Tombe
050.LR2.019 Here dwels he, though soiarrnes euerie where,
050.LR2.020 In progresse, yet his standing house is heere,
050.LR2.021 heere where still evening is, not noone, or night
050.LR2.022 where noe voluptuousnesse, but all delight
050.LR2.023 In all her words, vnto all hear%5rs%6 ffitts.
050.LR2.024 yo%5w%6: maie att revells, yo%5w%6 att councell sitt
050.LR2.025 This is loues tymb:%5r%6, youth her vnderwood
050.LR2.026 There he as wyne in Iune enrages bloode
050.LR2.027 w%5ch%6: then comes resonablest, when o%5r%6: tast
050.LR2.028 And Appetite, to oth%5r%6 thinges is past.
050.LR2.029 %#%#Strange Lydian loue, y%5e%6 Plat%Mane tree
050.LR2.030 Was loued for age, none being so large as shee;
050.LR2.031 Or els because being young, nature did blesse
050.LR2.032 Her youth w%5th%6 ages glorie, barrannesse.
050.LR2.033 If wee loue things long sought, age is a thing
050.LR2.034 w%5ch%6 wee are 50 yeares in compassing, [CW:If#transi=]
050.LR2.035 If transitorye things, w%5ch%6: soone decay [p.14]
050.LR2.036 Age must be louelyest att y%5e%6 latest day
050.LR2.037 But name not wint%5r%6 faces, whose skins slacke
050.LR2.038 lank as an vnthrifts purse, but a soules sa%Acke
050.LR2.039 Whose eyes seeke light w%5th%6in, for all heere's shade;
050.LR2.040 Whose mouthes are holes rather worne out then made,
050.LR2.041 Whose Ivorie teeth to a funerall place is gone
050.LR2.042 To vex the%5r%6: soules att resurrection:
050.LR2.043 Name not these liueing Deathes heads vnto me
050.LR2.044 for these not antient, but antiques be,
050.LR2.045 I hate extreames, yet I had rath%5r%6 staye
050.LR2.046 W%5th%6: Tombes, then Cradles to weare out a daye:
050.LR2.047 Since such loues naturall Lation is, maie still
050.LR2.048 My loue descend, & iourney downe y%5e%6 hill,
050.LR2.049 %#%#Not panting aft%5r%6: growing beawties, so
050.LR2.050 %#%#I shall ebb on w%5th%6: those w%5ch%6: homeward goe.|
